green bean casserole

This is one dish of my Mom’s that I feel confident in sharing with you. If you know me in real life, you know that my mother is not a cook. Mom, I love you. Your apple pies are out of this world. You’re cheesecakes are fantastic. Your Pilgrim Pies are delicious! Yes! But we can be honest here, right?

Well my Mom can make a green bean casserole and here’s how she does it….pay attention now, the measurements are VERY precise…

2 cans french-style green beans
1 can cream of mushroom soup, hold on to that can!
3/4 cream of mushroom soup can milk
1 large container french fried onions (we call them crunchy things. That’s what my sister called them when she was little and she loved them. If she knew they were onions, she would never touch them again.)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together green beans, soup, milk, and 3/4 of the french fried onions. Pour into casserole dish.
3. Cook for 2o minutes. Remove from oven and top with the rest of the french fried onions. Put back in the oven for 10 more minutes, or until heated through and the onions turn a golden brown.
I know that’s not much modification to the standard green bean casserole recipe, but it really is enough to make a difference.
Every other green bean casserole I’ve ever had has simply been meh in comparison.
